It was in November 2018 that the Fiji Airways Flying Fijians created history as they recorded their first win over France when they beat them 21-14 in Paris.

That early Sunday morning, Semi Radradra and Josua Tuisova scored the tries for Fiji while Ben Volavola also contributed 11 points via the boot.

Radradra, Volavola, Tuisova were in the team with Leone Nakarawa, Mesulame Dolokoto, Sam Matavesi, Frank Lomani and Albert Tuisue and these players are also part of Fiji’s Autumn Nations Cup Campaign.

Some players that are missing from that historic day are Vereniki Goneva, Metuisela Talebula, Peceli Yato, Semi Kunatani, Viliame Mata and the then captain Dominiko Waqaniburotu.

Fiji takes on France at 3.15am Monday in their first Autumn Nations Cup.
